“We’re basically putting this live album out for free so folks know what to expect this fall and are stoked and tell their friends,” explains rock and roll songwriter Jon Snodgrass. “Also, this was the only rock show that we played last year.” Tace – Live at The Social Sanctuary is now available worldwide via music streaming services. Fans will finally be able to experience the album live in concert this fall as well (dates below).
Their only live performance of 2020 was originally broadcasted live from Gallagher Staging (The Social Sanctuary) in Los Angeles, CA during October 2020. The audio was mixed at Bertrand’s Tea Pot by Casey Cress and mastered at The Blasting Room by Jason Livermore during the summer of 2021.
Tace is a collection of rock and roll songs paying homage to those that helped mold Snodgrass into a songwriting machine including The Beatles, ALL, Uncle Tupelo, The Replacements, Hüsker Dü, Thin Lizzy, Warren Zevon, Kris Kristofferson, Merle Haggard, Waylon Jennings, Cheap Trick, The Cure, X, and Jawbreaker among others.
Special guest vocalists include John Moreland, Tim McIlrath (Rise Against), Joey Cape (Lagwagon, Bad Astronaut), Stephen Egerton (Descendents, ALL), Stacey Dee (Bad Cop/Bad Cop), and Derek Zanetti (The Homeless Gospel Choir). From premeditated murder (“Don’t Break Her Heart”) to drunk guilt (“Footage”) to growing apart (“BoyzIIMen”) to being ripped off (“Bad New Lands”) to having many talents (“Renaissance Man”) – Tace sums up the past few years of Snodgrass’ life in a rock and roll storytelling manner.
The album received quite a bit of critical acclaim. New Noise Magazine declared, “his best effort yet.” American Songwriter proclaimed, “soulful rock and Americana.” Glide Magazine asserted, “big crashing guitars and drums with just the right amount of grit.” The Punk Site added, “pure rock ‘n’ roll.”
